Four Questions to Ask When Booking Your Wedding Venue
Booking your wedding venue is an exciting time as a bride-to-be! While there are many important facets to your big day, the venue is undoubtedly one of the most important! When shopping around, there are a few questions to ask when booking your wedding venue. Read below for our tips on what to look for and what to ask.
- Find out if your venue has a preferred or exclusive vendor list! This means that these vendors have been vetted by your vendor and come highly recommended. An exclusive vendor list means you must only use these specific vendors. Regardless of whether it’s a preferred or exclusive list, this will take some of the guesswork out of researching vendors, especially if you’re planning an out of town wedding. We’ve compiled our favorite vendors for your Destin Bay House event, from florists to photographers to even officiants! All of these vendors are tried and tested and we couldn’t be happier to work with them.
- Another helpful tip is finding out what makes the venue in mind special or unique. Does it have a rich history or a beautiful outdoor garden area? Is the venue reflective of a special moment in your relationship? What traditions does the venue have? When you choose Destin Bay House for your event, you’ll find the beautiful chandeliers, wood floors, barn doors, and exterior lighting was specially selected for all events. Each couple whose ceremony takes place at Destin Bay House receives a custom-carved cross that hangs on the venue walls. The cross stays up after the ceremony as a representation of the new union.

- Understanding the floor plans is crucial to know how many guests you can invite! You wouldn’t want to book a venue with a capacity of 300 but invite 500 guests. Fortunately, Destin Bay House can accommodate events both large and small. The 4,000 square foot lawn accommodates outdoor weddings and receptions up to 200 guests. We also offer a variety of different floor plans to accommodate your needs!
- Undoubtedly one of the most important parts of booking your venue is understanding the fine print! You’ll want to closely read your wedding contract to know all the ins and outs of what your venue allows. For example, you may want your guests to send you off with sparklers, but then be disappointed when the venue doesn’t allow it. Venue coordinators also appreciate and welcome all questions, so don’t be shy if there’s something you want to know!
